Speculation over the possible "Grexit" is irrelevant, and Europe is strongly committed to cooperate with Greece and bring the country to recovery after new government comes to power, Eurogroup president's spokesperson told Sputnik Friday.

"There are no real concerns about a possible Grexit. The leaders of all the large Greek political parties have indicated that they want Greece to stay in the eurozone. And there is a strong political commitment in Europe too to keep Greece in the eurozone," Simone Boitelle, spokesperson for the president of the Eurogroup told Sputnik.

Eurogroup is the main forum for the eurozone management, comprising finance ministers of states that use Euro as their currency.

Boitelle also added that Eurogroup's president Jeroen Dijsselbloem "has said on several occasions that the Eurogroup stands ready to work with the new government. Key is to keep Greece on the route of recovery."
